Chicken and Black Bean Vegetable  Soup is my recipe of the day  for the blogging  event National  Soup Swap day.

This is separate from  my  usual soup swap group which posts one Saturday per  month.  I am posting  for  that one  today as well. So it’s a double your pleasure  thing  if you are looking for new soup recipes.

Today’s  soup is a combination  of a vegetable and southwest chicken and black bean soup. It has some in  common with a tortilla soup but different.

I  made the soup this way to up  the amount of vegetables and I was dodging  having the carbs associated  with adding tortilla strips.

If you like this soup  spicy, feel free to add a little hot  sauce such as Louisiana or Tabasco. Salsa is  a good addition as well,  depending  what you  have on hand.

This soup is good for  me when I am  counting  calories. Increasing both my  soup and  water  intake is  one  of  the ways I like to do dieting. It keeps me feeling full so it doesn’t upend my metabolism as much as very restrictive portions.
